Inspired by the neighbouring Pacific Islands, this wine range compliments the abundance of fresh fruit and fish the islands are famous for.
The label features a Nikau Palm which is endemic to New Zealand.
White fruit aromas, pear and apple with a lifted intriguing spice. The palate is beautifully textured with a gentle sweetness, soft acidity and clean pear flavours. This wine is drinking well now but can be cellared.
The grapes for this wine were harvested in our Marlborough vineyard and transported to a contract facility for dejuicing and settling. The clear juice was transported by road tanker to our Katikati winery where it was fermented in stainless steel tanks at around 12°C using Q Citrus and Aroma White yeast strains. Following fermentation the wine was blended, protein stabilized, cold stabilized and fined. The finished wine was bottled in July 2019.
